The aim of this project is to develop functional sound low cost flat plate collector suitable for use by low income groups, including dwellers of remote rural areas, which are generally poor. The device had to be low cost, simple and easy to maintain. This project enhances local skills to manually design, develop and manufacture solar thermal energy collectors using locally available materials. The finished solar thermal energy collectors installed in the rural remote mountainous area for the poor old woman pensioner for testing. The system is refilled using small water buckets hence solve problems facing women and children in remote areas.
